Short Film: The Machine

Short Film: The Machine

Even if you take The Machine at face value (The Matrix w/puppets), it’s hard to miss its morality play angle; it’s otherwise a gorgeous stop-motion film styled like an old-time nickel arcade.

We’ve been having a bit too much fun with light painting lately, but we can’t help it: this trippy stop-motion 4th of July video by Jon Thomas is perfectly set to MGMT’s “Kids”.
